If you know what is right, you will vote for Brodeur. He's probably retiring this year and this would be a fitting close to his historic career.

I'm a huge Devils fan so Id love to see him win. Being from Columbus I also wouldn't mind it if Bob won

Bob or Brodeur for sure!

Subban deserves it. Imagine the marketing opportunities.

But they would want someone from a less "hockey loving" town. Becuase people from Montreal will buy the game anyway, but if bobrovsky is on the cover maybe more people from columbus would buy the game. Plus I would say that the vote is rigged anyway, based on last years and this years results.

Man I get your point, but I know a ton of people who love hockey here. I also got a lot of friends that buy this game. Columbus really gets a bad wrap. If they keep a lot of talent and come out off the momentum of this year Columbus will have great attendance. The biggest knock I have on my town is that If teams lose no one comes unless its the buckeyes

I know columbus has a great fanbase and didn't mean to take a shot at anyone, just when I was writing this comment bobrovsky came to mind, cuz the kid is such a beast

Thanks man and no sidnt feel no shots were takin. Bob is the hype here right now. Don't know how he's viewed elsewhere... But I know I've played some Maple Leaf fans on NHL and they like hate Columbus also met some fans from the hockey traditionalist that want us canned lol. Don't quite get why Columbus can be so disliked.
